Synopsis: For four decades the UN has attempted to foster development in the countries of the Southern hemisphere. The book provides a synopsis of these efforts, from the Brandt Commission Report to Boutros Boutros Ghali's Agenda for Development. It presents opposing arguments in parceling responsibility for the growing gap between the North and the South and details the Millennium Development Goals and assesses their successes and failures so far. Prof. Milkias provides suggestions for closing the gap, for removing the debt burden that is currently crushing the nations of the South, and for relieving the poverty, ignorance and disease that plague so much of humanity. In this unique book Dr. Milkias places the focus on the United Nations' contribution to the development of the South and summarizes what the UN has accomplished in advancing development during the last half century.
